Twelve-year-old Lizzie Durango has always had a zoo to call home. Her dad is the head zookeeper at a California wildlife park named after famous naturalist John Muir, and Lizzie has grown up bottle-feeding baby llamas and handling boa constrictors.

One afternoon while roaming the zoo grounds, she bumps into Tyler Briggs, a runaway who has been hiding out at the zoo and noticing strange happenings after dark. The two become friends and are soon drawn into a mystery that involved dying wolves, a cursed canyon, and the legend of John Muir's lost cabin. Little do they know their alliance will take them deep into Yosemite National Park on a high-stakes adventure that will put their lives in peril.
